My Lords, the problem is much wider than compost. Flora and fauna are being drastically affected. For example, the numbers of the iconic bird of the upland in summer, the curlew, have fallen dramatically because, without the peat bogs, they find it difficult to feed, in spite of their long beaks. Will he draw that to the attention of the agricultural civil servants in his department?
My Lords, the noble Baroness is aware that virtually every pharmacist and every GP is experiencing dire shortages of certain medicines already. If the Government have such a good alternative plan for a no-deal Brexit, why do they not bring forward those plans to deal with the shortage that patients are facing today?
My Lords, I will pursue the issue of the WTO regulations. I am advised that the WTO says that there will be no tariffs on agricultural products. Have the Government had proper legal advice that that will not apply to the UK if we leave without a deal and that it certainly will not apply to us in relation to the United States?
